ABOUT FOODRAISING NIGHT
Kizin Creole believes in a philosophy that centers on building a strong, positive and healthy community where everyone and every entity are doing their fair share. The Foodraising Night program is an initiative to help support the causes of many organizations, churches and schools in the community.
Any organization, regardless of ethnic or cultural affiliation can submit a request to host a FoodRaising Night at Kizin Creole Restaurant. This is a great way to rally the community to support a good cause. A member of the organization will work together with a member of the Kizin Creole staff to design a program where the guests will enjoy authentic Caribbean cuisine, have fun, network and raise money for the organization’s cause. Our goal is to build unity among the diverse community in which we live and to create ways to give back to the community. Magic Johnson once said: "If the community is happy, then they support your business and if your business is doing well, then you can give back even more to the community."
To qualify, an organization must be a registered 501c3 (IRS letter required) with a Tax I.D. number. Also the organization must be registered with the state of Illinois and in good standing. Any organization, including churches, community centers, schools and clubs, is encouraged to apply if it believes that the cause will contribute to a strong, positive and healthy community. .
How FoodRaising Night Donation Works?
Kizin Creole Restaurant will donate a percentage, based on the number of guests in attendance, of the net food and beverage sales generated by the supporters, family and friends of the organization on the specified FoodRaising night. A minimum of 20 guests is required for a donation to be made. The more invited guests, the greater the donation percentage.
20-29 guests = 10%
30-49 guests = 15%
50-99 guests = 20%
100+ guests = 25%
Kizin Creole will create the flyers and admission tickets if necessary; and the organization will be responsible for promoting the event and encouraging supporters to attend. The event will set up as a buffet and guests are required to make reservations online and prepay for tickets. This is also a great opportunity to showcase the positive work that your organization has been doing; and/or the services you are providing to the community.
